An apparent murder-suicide in a hospital emergency room leads to an investigation by the on-call doctor, which reveals a plot by an insane toymaker to kill as many people as possible during Halloween through an ancient Celtic ritual involving a stolen boulder from Stonehenge and Halloween masks.

Nancy Loomis played Annie, Laurie Strode's best friend, in the first "Halloween" film. In this film, she has a cameo as Dr. Challis' ex-wife Linda, which was the name of Annie and Laurie's other best friend in the first film. See more »
(at around 17 mins) After Dan hangs up the phone with his ex-wife in the start of the movie the police officer uses the phone and if you listen carefully you can hear "if you need help hang up and dial your operator," and it still happens as the officer dials. See more »
[about Grimbridge's attacker]
I've seen lots of people on drugs. The man was in complete control. He looked like a businessman!
Well, he had to be one strong businessman, I can tell you that. You don't just pull someone's skull apart without a little lower-arm strength, know what I mean?

Many viewers have bashed on this film, claiming it stinks and that it has nothing in common with the other HALLOWEEN films. Well, let me tell you, if you're a true Carpenter idolizer you'll see him written all over this. Writer/director Tommy Lee Wallace didn't necessarily write the best script in the world, but his direction is decent. The performances are kind of stale, but they still come through. On the more positive side, Carpenter's electronic score is one of his greatest in my book. From the eerie opening to the chase sequence, the music fits the movie perfectly. Granted, the film has nothing to do with Michael Myers and Haddonfield, etc., but it is the same season, and Myers was supposedly BURNT TO A CRISP WITH HIS EYES SHOT OUT!!!!!! in the end of HALLOWEEN II. HALLOWEEN III is definitely worth viewing. And watch for Tom Atkins' wife in here: she's played by the same actress who played Annie in HALLOWEEN (Nancy Loomis Kyes).
